S.M. is Scipio Moorhead, slave of the Reverend John Moorhead of Boston. :)

I love this poem too, it was assigned to us in my American Literature
class. Although I don't know on which painting this poem was inspired I do
know that S.M. stands for Scipio Moorhead who was a servant.

This poem is lovely. Does anyone know who S.M is or the painting that
inspired the poem?

Indeed the author is seen through her thoughts as noble! She talks about
the gloom of the earthly (the painting) end with grace.

Great courage!
